Since the acceleration of gravity
is always toward the center of the earth, g = (0,0,-9.81 m/[s.sup.2]) is measured if another force is not applied to the acceleration sensor.
where [DELTA]V is the difference in the potential between to different points [P.sub.1] and [P.sub.2], and [g.sub.cor] is the corrected or total acceleration of gravity
and z is the difference in vertical distance between the two beams as the interferometer coil rotates.
In contrast, sensors based on strain gages, variable capacitance, or LVDT principles correctly respond to the static acceleration of gravity
and can be used as inclinometers.

V = velocity of fall (cm [sec-.sup.1]), g = acceleration of gravity
(cm [sec-.sup.2]), [d.sub.m] = "equivalent" diameter of particle (cm), [.sub.s] = density of particle (g [sec-.sup.3]),  = density of medium (g [sec-.sup.3]), and [mu] = viscosity of medium (dyne sec [cm-.sup.2])
Results of repeated measurements along national levelling lines of the 1st order and repeated determinations of acceleration of gravity
in the local geodynamic network "Paczkow" were used with the aim at detecting movements of the upper part of the earth's crust.
Motions of more than 0.1 times the acceleration of gravity
(g) can damage buildings.
(6.) Acceleration of gravity
: a unit of force equal to the force exerted by gravity on a body at rest and used to indicate the force to which a body is subjected when accelerated, Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, l0th ed., s.v.
